Terms of Sale

Payment is due upon pickup or delivery. To customers who have established credit with us, payment is due within 30 days of invoice date. After 30 days, payment is requested in full. A finance charge will be imposed on your account if full payment is not made within 30 days of invoice date. The finance charge is calculated at the rate of 2% per month, which corresponds to an annual percentage rate of 24%. Your invoice is your bill; no monthly statements will be issued. Misuse of customer credit will result in a cash only policy. We also accept MasterCard, Visa and bank debit cards. All prices are subject to change without notice.

Discounts and Specials: A 5% discount will be given when buying 20 or more of one variety in a single purchase. Many discounted plants (10% off) will be offered at our Fall Open House/Customer Appreciation Days, to be held this year (2018) on Monday and Tuesday, October 1 and 2.

Ordering Suggestions; Ordering direct from our catalog (mailed to established customers in late winter) is usually only about 50% successful since not all items are always available. Current availability will be noted on the "Order" and the "View Catalog" pages at this site. We anticipate 95% or better fulfillment on such orders.

Delivery: We deliver via our trucks Tuesday-Friday at your request. Please allow 48 hours between placing your order and the date of delivery. Delivery schedules are established as each week progresses, but generally, we travel South on Wednesdays, North and West on Thursdays, and East on Fridays. Tuesday is an open date, so pretty much anything is possible. Delivery minimums and charges are as follows:

0-30 miles from nursery 30-75 miles 75-100 miles
$500 minimum order
$45 delivery charge
$1,000 minimum order
$75 delivery charge
$2,000 minimum order
$100 delivery charge

Deposit/Return: Due to the annual increase in plastic costs and an ever-worsening landfill problem, we have requested a 10¢ deposit on each of our contains from our landscape clients only. This deposit is totally refundable upon return of our containers. This policy has been very successful due to the active involvement of our landscape professionals and we anticipate its continued success. Please see the Recycling Center.

Hours/Location: The nursery is open Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm, and Saturday, 8am - 1pm. The nursery is located on (NY) State Route 66, 4 miles north of Chatham Center, on the right, just before the intersection of County Route 32 and State Route 66. It is a long driveway. The mailbox number is 4569-Behn, directly across from a large white farmhouse. The location is referred to as "Uptown Malden Bridge." Click here for a map.

Our Policy on Your Privacy:

We're in the business of providing the very best perennials to our customers. We're not in the ad business so we will exert our best efforts to ensure that providing us with your email address will NOT result in receipt of (additional) spam nor any other invasion of your privacy. Specifically, we will NOT sell, rent, lease or lend your email address to anyone. Behn's Best Perennials will use your email address ONLY to communicate with you about your orders.

We do NOT currently use "cookies" on this website. The only "tracking" we do is that which is necessary in the course of a SINGLE visit here to permit ordering. In other words, this site makes no attempt to collect personal information other than that which we explicitly and openly request, and which you agree to provide.

Some computer users prefer to avoid allowing "scripts" to run from the web. The calculator process on the orders page DOES require javascript. If your browser permits, you can enable javascript for this site, without making it active for any other site.

If we make any changes to this policy or its implementation, we will post those changes here, highlighting any implications such changes may have for you.
